Ed Shouse Is a Good One

Tonight at Knox County Commission meeting, Union County Superintendent Wayne Goforth spoke about how Union County is building an elementary school for less than $6.0 million dollars. Ed Shouse asked at the end how is it that Union County receives 70% of it's budget dollars from the State of Tennessee while Knox County only receives less than a third of it's dollars from the State of Tennessee. It was dismissed as that is BEP money. I would like to see the Commission dig deeper on that issue. Knox County has more special education and special needs students than a rural district. The State is not living up to it's committment.
